In this BAFT Studios project, you will jump into a full-scale short film production. This immersive, experiential, project-based learning environment will give young filmmakers the opportunity to work on a safe, fun, and collaborative film set. 


Filmmakers will learn and actively participate in each stage of film production:  

  • Pre-Production: In this four-week phase, students will get a “writer’s room” experience--a collaborative space where the groundwork for creative ideas comes together. Students will learn world-building by exploring and incorporating elements of screenwriting. Next, filmmakers will go through visual pre-production, shot lists, scheduling, and casting. 

  • Production: In this full-day phase, each student filmmaker will get a professionally guided hands-on experience to make their story come to life. They will learn how to effectively communicate as actors and filmmakers, rotate through crew positions, and practice industry-standard set operations. 

  • Post-Production: In the final two project sessions, filmmakers will collaborate through the post-production and editing process and will complete their short film on the final day of the project. 


Each filmmaker will have the chance to rotate through a variety of film set positions both in front of and behind the camera. Come ready to find your creative voice!
